The Rhodes University in South Africa offers the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Masters & Doctoral Scholarships in History, Memory and Trauma in African Fiction in 2021
The focus of Dr Thando Njovane’s project is History, Memory and Trauma in African Fiction. Working within this interdisciplinary lens, the project investigates how works of fiction may help us theorise trauma, history and memory from an African perspective. This may include comparative studies with other postcolonial, post-conflict and/or African-American fictions in which questions of race and/or embodiment feature prominently.
Masters and PhD candidates interested in interdisciplinary research which examines the relationship between fiction and any combination of the central concepts (history, memory and trauma) are invited to apply
